One other investigator/ally is enough to trigger the passive ability. The investigator triggering the ability can also be the investigator gaining the bonus.

Essentially as long as there is someone else on her location, either another investigator or an ally, every investigator on her space gets +1 to all abilities.

The fact that it only applies to her space, and that it is not a bonus die should keep it from being too OP.

Nice catch...seems likely. King in Yellow was a small box in Arkham Horror so it might be the next small box xpac.

But her Ally will always be in her space, so if she gets one early on, boom, she's crazy strong.

Not going to happen every game, but we'll have to see. Maybe there's not a single Ally in the new cards, so they've diluted the probability. Maybe she starts with some negative condition.

According to the spoilers we got from the Arkham Nights event, she starts in Tokyo with a Cryptic Text Unique Asset and 1 Clue.

Thanks!

Also, based on some feedback on this in another thread, her passive is a bonus, so it doesn't stack like an improvement token would. Still nice, but not as strong as I was initially (mis)understanding it.

Yes and no. It's a +1, not an extra die, so it won't stack with other bonuses. So... good, but not as insane as it first appears.
